Flopcast 611: The Super Dictionary – Be a Duck

Flopcast 611 Aquaman water baseball

Flopcast episode 611! Ready for more vocabulary lessons with the Justice League of America? We’re diving back into The Super Dictionary, a 1978 book that attempted to mix learning with superheroes, and succeeded in being completely bizarre. This time we’ll look at entries involving: walrus baseball with Aquaman, cleaning an invisible jet with Wonder Woman, nap time with the Man of Steel, people crashing when they try to fly like Hawkgirl, the Batmobile crashing because Robin can’t drive, Supergirl weirdly watching kids sleep, Luthor weirdly watching people comb their hair, a stranger in the basement, naked aliens… and multiple entries about Green Lantern’s curious obsession with ducks. Study hard, kids, and maybe we’ll make you an honorary Wonder Twin. Also: Happy Birthday to Lost in Space’s Will Robinson, Bill Mumy! Light a candle on a fish head for Bill.
